How to Expand a Simple Website
(Page 1 of 4 )
Do you have a web site that you haven't done much with yet? Would you like to build a blog or other content-based site on that domain? Keep reading. This article will show you how to take your tiny site to the next level.
This long overdue article is the follow-up to"How to Set Up a Simple Website"that I posted back in 2007 and have gotten great feedback about ever since. Because of this, I decided to write a bit more advanced article that focuses on taking your simple website to the next level.
This article will show you how I took my simple website that I talked about in the first part and obtained inexpensive web hosting, switched over to the WordPress CMS (content management system), and started generating thousands of unique visitors per month quicker than you may think.
If you have a website that is sitting dormant, gathering dust on a free hosting account and getting zero search engine traffic, this tutorial is perfect for you. I'll show you how I turned my tiny website into a blog that is quickly becoming an authority in its niche.
If you recall from my first "How to Set Up a Simple Website"article, the domain that I chose to use is http://promotehealth.info. If you notice the screen shot of my website from "part 1" of this series compared to how my site looks now, you'll see a substantial (understatement!) difference in the design.
I'll try and show you how I went from point A to point B; it really only took a weekend to get it all set up. If you have some knowledge of the WordPress CMS and/or PHP, CSS, and other scripting languages, you can get it done much faster than I did. Since I had very limited knowledge of these types of things going into my website makeover, I used a lot of trial and error throughout the process, which is effective, but time-consuming.
